In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Embrace the Ick.”
I have it and it’s real. Seriously.
I have this unexplainable aversion to hole-y things, especially those that look like this. Like something’s gonna crawl out of them.
Even when you press your palms a little too long on those stony pavement and it leaves hole-like marks on them. UGH.
But okay, challenge SORT OF accepted.
HOLES are your new best friend!
Have you ever heard of the phrase “Hole in the wall”?
It’s typically a low key place that you’ve probably passed by and never noticed and it offers great finds. Not necessarily things but you know, great music, good food, or just a very homey feel.
Imagine everyone poking a hole everywhere and stuffing it with mini surprises! Wouldn’t that be great? That at every turn you would find an irregularly shaped hole with a prize.
Okay. Holes aren’t a great topic after all. It’s starting to have double meaning and I just noticed.
Admittedly, not my best work but I think this prompt is challenging and it’s good to face your fears.
